ca 1962
Painting, oil on cardboard, 150 x 100 cm


The painting ”Espagne” (Spain) is one of Jeanne Mammen‘s later works. Here there is a dominant, regular, mosaic-like structure of white lines and shapes, interrupted and partially covered by several layers of red, orange, yellow, green and blue colored areas. In the center, two crossed lines and a superimposed oval may be interpreted as a human face. The entire painting is covered with a fi ne web of red-brown paint splashes. This ”dripping” technique emphasizes the impression of space.
